Great hostel, very close to castle. Spotlessly clean with friendly staff. Stayed in deluxe dorm with bathroom. Excellent value for money. Was quite while I was there but am sure this place had atmos when a little busier. But fully recommend - brilliant place. Ill be back!

Great location and good value for city centre. Had a brill time here. It's not a swanky flashpkacker hostel but it does the trick for a weekend in the city. Close to the pubs in Temple Bar but not too close that you can't get a good nights sleep. Right next to Trinity Collegue. Bathroom on each room which is good could have done with a lick of paint. Lockers are bad n make loads of noise when you drag them from under the beds and wi-fi only worked in the lobby.

Warung Coco Poppies 2

Kuta, Indonesia
77%

Places in Kuta are a little more expensive than the rest of Bali and provide less. Poppies is close to the bars and the beach. It's clean and a comfy place to stay after a night at the clubs. It's not bad but I probably would not stay again.

Lovely hostel in safe area. Clean, comfy and excellent tasty free cake. Staff very helpful .. Place is often full as a result of good reviews so try to book in advance, especially if arriving at the weekend. There was a common area - I'm travelling alone - so would have been nice to meet people but no-one ever hung out there. So was a little lacking in atmos. But other than that - a great stay and would recommend. Not much to do in Melaka. So would only stay 2 nights max.

Bounce Sydney

Sydney, Australia

Probably the best rating ive ever given a hostel. I booked for 3 but seated for 9 nifhts. Good value for Sydney. Lovely staff, so so clean. Great roof top terrace with theme nights where you can easily meet people. It's a massive hostel so it could have felt unfriendly but didn't. Only bad point - wi-fi is not free. I know this is an ozzy thing but its about time they came into this century!!!

Great hostel. Close to the main part of town and feels safe. Lovely, gardens and excellent pool. I stayed on here a couple of extra days to relax on a hammock in the garden it was so nice. Chilled and welcoming atmosphere. Great cooking lessons, salsa and yoga to get involved in. Everyone is made to feel at home here. I stayed in a MASSIVE girls dorm ..which got a little too hot at night - although a fan was provided for every bed. Fully recommend staying here.

Lovely welcoming place with charming rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. I'm not a big fan of dogs normally but the ones here are lovely and friendly to the customers. Trip to the canyon was great and good value. Nice to sit by the fire in the evenings. A bit of a walk from the main part of town but that's not a problem.

Hostel Cathedral

Mexico City, Mexico

A brilliant hostel right by the zocalo. Great breakfast on roof terrace overlooking the church. Fun place with free walking tours in the afternoon are a great way to get to know the city and drinks on the roof top with other guests in the evening are cool. Nice and quiet though when you want to get some shut eye. Clean rooms with good lockers. Fully recommended.

Lovely old building. Security a little lacking. Did not feel like my bags were safe in their outside luggage room. Bit of a debacle with lockers. Room really noisy but that was down to the other people in it having no respect for other guests. Close to tube and easy to get into the west end. But have stayed in better places in London.

Hi there and thank you for your review. At the moment we are actually building a new luggage room inside the building which is going to be much more secure. Hope to have you with us again soon :) Kind regards, The Palmers Lodge team.

Excellent place. Clean, very helpful staff, lovely pool to relax and cool down in after a hard days walking around the temples. A bit out of town down a quiet street - but this is not a problem as they offer you a free tuk tuk into town - and its easy to get one back to the hotel for just $2. RECOMMENDED

Stayed in a double room. Very clean, good air-con. Nice quite place ...away from the centre of town down a quiet street. Only a short walk to some of the main restaurants. Easy to get a tuk tuk from outside to the major sights. Very helpful staff ..for a small charge went and got my visa for Vietnam so I did not have to waste a day at the embassy. All round good joint (not a party place)

This hostel is excellent. A short walk (10 mins) from town and the main square. Its exceptionally clean and tidy. Rooms are comfortable and a good price. Its small and quiet with a friendly / homely atmosphere. There are good kitchen facilities if you want to do some of your own cooking. The owner at Cabanita's house is brilliant - speaks great English and is really helpful with any tours or information you need. RECOMMENDED.

Massive hostel. Clean, good value dorms. Can be a little noisey in the evenings. Becuase of its size it is a little unfriendly and I would suggest better for groups than people on their own. Great position right in the centre of town. Lovely lady who was very helpful suggesting the best and cheapest way to get to Machu Picchu.

Great little hostel - feels like you are in someones home. The owner was very helpful with our trip to the Nazca lines. Great breakfast, clean rooms and good hot showers.is a little hard to find though becuase the sign on the door is very small. People across the street told us it had closed down. DonĀ“t belive anyone who tells you that. Highly recommended.

Ekeko Hostel

Ok hostel for a short stay in Lima. Helpful English speaking staff. Lockers are in a common area which is not ideal. Every time I had a shower it was cold although they did keep telling me the hot water worked. Also for a big shared dorm of 9 people there was just one shower which is not great-expect queues in a morning.

Excellent hostel. Stayed both on the 1st and 6th floor. Great BBQ on Thursdays where you can meet fellow trevellers. Clean, tidy, comfortable - lovely lounge area and roof top terrace for reading, relaxing and having a drink in the evening. Great group of people there when I stayed - more mature feel to hostel with a great atmosphere. Staff really nice and extreemly helpful with tours, getting around town and advice. Great location. Would recommend this hostel and go again next time I'm in BA.


The Hostel-Inn Iguazu Falls

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
80%

Great position for going to the falls - being so big, its hard for loan travellers to meet other people. Most were in groups or couples. Staff helpful and can arrange bus transfer to both side of the falls. Pool great but could do with a good clean ...bits of hair and dirt floating around in it !! Our dorm was in the basemement - the bathroom was a little grubby with no ventilation so there was mould on walls. The rooms itself was clean and the air-con was well received in the hot weather.

Tango Hostel

If you like noise ...you will love this hostel. Its down the main street where all the bars and nightclubs are so you can party all night. However - if you fancy getting some sleep that might be a problem. Not in a bad place to access the main sites in town. Hostel owners friendly and place fairly clean but a little rough around the edges. I think you can find better places but its not too bad.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hola Sue! I really do not see how the hostel is "rough around the edges". The building and our facilities are well maintained and very clean. Yes there was a lot of fun had over a long lunch one day whilst you were staying with us. When I left at 10pm most people had headed out for dinner so it was not late either. Perhaps you would have given us a better score for fun had you joined in! Safe Travels

Ok hostel ..in central Bariloche. Nice breakfast / eating area which means you get to speak to fellow travellers. Hostel was not very clean when I stayed - there is only one bathroom / shower room which when the hostel was full it was pretty difficult to find a time when it was free. Staff really helpful with ideas of what to do - although its a good idea to get down to the tiurist information office and the park office as they can advise on where to go to do all the decent trekking.

Nice comfortable lounge room for reading a book or going on the internet on a rest day. Staff are good with information - the hostel just lacks a little atmospehere..probably down to the lack of bar! Good place to stay for a couple of days to see the Whales though. ;-)

Nice place to stay if you are going to do some walking in El Chalten. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Nice common area and excellent steaks on the menu! Excellent location just close to where the trekks start, with a great little sandwich shop close by to buy provisions for lunch. Nice atmosphere at the hostel in the evenings ...not a party hostel but that's to be expected since this place is there for the outdoors and walking. Had a great time in El Chalten.

Hostel in the lovely part of the old town. There was a mix up with my hostel world booking as they say they have changed their name to Old Street Hostel. Room was OK but needed to be cleanded. The bathroom was covered in mould - but overall not too bad. Staff were helpful in booking a bus.

Staff very helpful. Rooms did not have electirc points by the beds. There was only one in the room which is not enough. They were not doing food / breakfast when I stayed so had to go to the starbucks across the street.

A large, almost sprawling hostel...great if you want to find a quiet spot to read. The main room has a big TV playing movies all day. This means everyone in the room is transfixed on the screen rather than chatting with other travellers. The TV needs to go for this to live up to its cosy, friendly claim. Other than that ...great hostel, excellent staff, great trips to see the Pandas. Sim was very helpful on getting busses into town since the hostel is not in the main hub of town.

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments at the hostelworld after you stayed here for two days. Sim's Cozy is a hostel without any rigid style. As we are running for travellers, especially for backpackers, anyway, we tried our best to meet all the needs for the guest who stay in our hostel. We have the bar for chatting with each other. For the public DVD room, it is mainly for travellers to have a rest there and get the English movies or other languages after the long trip in China. For the location, we are on the first ring road of Chengdu as there are more than three ring roads in Chengdu now. It is only around 20 minutes from our hostel to the center by public transport though it is not the walk distance. Thanks for your comments at the hostelworld again. We hope you will come back to stay at Sim's Cozy Guesthouse next time. Hope you will have a good journey in China.
